Totally Random

No theme to this post. Just random items I enjoyed this week. Some (or all for those of you on the internet as much as I am) you may have seen already, but twice is always nice, right?

Dukkesa31 has been at it again. You know how much I love b&w images, so this video is a total win for me.

Billy Burke is getting set to release an album on June 22nd. You can read about the album and subscribe to updates on his website: The first single, Removed, is available as a free download, and I love it. (The woman in the video is his wife.)

Paramore was on the Ellen show last week and sang my favorite song from their new album, The Only Exception. I recently featured a Robsten video set to this same song (here). This song is just so beautiful. I hope you check it out, if you haven't already.

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that Rob started filming Water for Elephants last Thursday. The pics that came out from the first day of shooting were incredible. He looks amazing in his depression-era clothing. It is such a great book and the script adaptation is fantastic. I can absolutely see him as this character. As a huge Reese Witherspoon fan (Sweet Home Alabama is at the top of my list), I am beyond excited that they are making out this movie together. Another total win.

All images were taken from the Water for Elephants site. (See sidebar.)

Now look at what Thinking of Rob did to the images. They asked the question, "Ever wonder what a picture of Jacob Jankowski would have looked like back in the 30s?

I think I'd like to pack my bloggy bags and move in with Thinking of Rob. When I was over there getting the link for the above pictures, here is what was staring back at me.

There are lots more b&w images from the NM NY premiere that you can check out here. And since I can't move in with Thinking of Rob, I've let them move in with me and made them a permanent fixture on my sidebar so I can click and lick every day :)

I'm not sure what, if anything, I will do with this yet, but I had to have it. It's a font created by Twilight Poison of Rob's handwriting based on some of his autographs. 

I picked up my People Twilight Special "The Stars of Eclipse" issue on Thursday. I truthfully didn't know it was out yet. I was at the grocery store and walking past the end caps when the cover with Rob on it caught my eye. I smiled (hugely), grabbed one, and put it in my cart. I took about 10 more steps and saw the copy with Taylor on the cover. I actually stopped and looked back inside my cart to make sure I had the one with Rob on the cover. Then I walked a little further expecting to find one with Kristen on the cover. Wow. There isn't one. Once again, People magazine has pissed me off. (I've never forgiven them for not naming Rob as the Sexiest Man Alive, even going so far as to cancel my subscription.) Now don't get me wrong, I would have bought the copy with Rob on the cover regardless, but to exclude Kristen is wrong. Without Kristen/Bella, there is no Team Rob/Edward vs. Team Taylor/Jacob.

Before I get back to Fifty, I want to remind everyone that my Super Bloggy BFF Mrs. P is on vacation and has lined up some awesome babysitters to watch over things while she is gone. Be sure and stop by. The key is under the welcome mat and there's a party going on ;)

Hope you had a great weekend.
As always, mine went way too fast.

Hey Lisa - I hadn't heard of that song by Paramore. I really like Haley's voice. I just started reading Water for Elephants yesterday, and I really like it already. Can't wait for the movie. I'm glad you're a Thinking of Rob girl. Did you ever look at those black and white photos I tweeted you from there? FakerParis and the bunch have been very good to me by showing off my wallpapers and such. I'm up tomorrow night on TwiBite. Wish me luck!

RobzSinger said...

Love the video!

17foreverlisa said...

Hey Amy! I'm glad you liked the Paramore song. Of course, that tells me you didn't listen to it when I posted the Robsten video previously. LOL!! I'm so glad you're reading the book. Yes, I did look at the photos you tweeted me. Thanks again. I am glad that you are getting more exposure for your designs. You deserve it :) And, of course, I wish you luck for tomorrow. I can't wait to read it. I have missed your posts. You know I'm you're #1 fan.

@RobzSinger - Thanks! I am assuming you mean the first one :)

Dangrdafne said...

The manipulated pictures to look like they are from the 30's are amazing. Wow!

I love random things posts. You never know what you are gonna get but there is always a great caramel in there :)

Can't believe the weekend is over. At least next weekend is a long one for me - Memorial Day weekend in the States :) woo hoo

Twired Jen said...

Hey Lisa,
I LOVE what thinking of Rob did to those images. Is it even possible he looks sexier in the aged-looking photos? Wow.

I hadn't heard that Paramore song...and you referred to a Robsten vid that it went along with...did I miss something along the way? I'll have to click the hyperlink you so graciously added. I also plan to pick up one of those mags...swoon.

Oops, I almost forget...Billy Burke's, I'm not LOVING it. Maybe I need to listen again?

Thanks for the re-cap!

I love that Paramore song. Haley & Rob would make such beautiful music together....sorry I know you're a Robsten lover.
Whenever I see any WFE pics (he looks so HOT, even hotter in B&W) it reminds me of the video for an old U2 song called "All I want is You".
All the promises we made,
from the cradle to the grave,
When all I want is you....
Appropriate ey?

Jelena @ Twiholic said...

Well, Lisa, it's been a while since I came to your house. I love the decorations. :D

Since I'm at work, I can't watch the videos. But I'm lovin' the photoshopped photos. Great job ToR.

Anyhow, I have been wondering why you're not babysitting TwiBite?

Isabella MARIE Cullen said...

Rob + sepia = YUMMY!!!!!!!!
Great post chickie!!!!

17foreverlisa said...

@Dangrdafne - The 30s-style pics are gorgeous, aren't they? And, yes, we do have a three-day holiday to look forward to. We need it!

@Twired Jen - I can't believe you missed the Robsten vid. Hope you got a chance to check out. The Billy Burke song has grown on me. I like the raw edge to his voice, especially in the chorus. Not sure how it will do in mainstream public, though.

@Jelena - Yes, it has been awhile ;) As far as babysitting Mrs. P's blog goes, she left me in charge once of watching the door for the TwiBite Manager's Meeting and I let Kristen in. LOL! Seriously, though, we have done so much together since we started blogging that we wanted it to be an opportunity for other bloggers. I am looking forward to reading all of the posts. Fun stuff!

Kelly said...

I love Thinking of Rob.. and all of her B&W's.. she does some really beautiful work with the pics over there!!

Great post..

and the B&W of Rob.. that last one...


mmMoxie said...

Lord Almighty! Rob in WFE is DELISH! I can't wait for it to come out.

I listened to the Billy Burke song. All I have to say is, "I love ya but don't quit your day job."

TongueTwied said...

I'd love to stay and write more but knowing that People magazine is "out there" somewhere and not in my house by my bedside is killing me so I'll be back once that situation is remedied.

HG from Trueblood Twilight said...

Holy smokes, look at this delicious little assortment of goodies. I am loving the aged WFE photos and I love the font. I need to download that at home.

MissAmyJoon said...

@Lisa - I have not, nor will I ever watch a Robsten video. It's just not happening.

17foreverlisa said...

@Stacked Like Sookie - Yes, I am a Robsten lover, but if that doesn't work out, I think he and Haley would make a very cute couple. I think she's adorable. The U2 song is definitely an appropriate song for our boy :) I see where Kristen and Taylor are going to promote Eclipse in Australia. Anywhere near you?

@Isabella MARIE Cullen - I like your math, teacher ;)

@Kelly - LOL!!

@mmMoxie - Are you saying that The Cold One is a better singer? LMAO! I am excited for WFE, too. I don't have any problem with him making out with Reese; unlike how I feel about him with the cast for Bel Ami.

@TongueTwied - *looking out the window for headlights* Must be a long drive ;)

@HG - Maybe you can incorporate the font into a video. It would look awesome with some updated black and white images from Thinking of Rob's collection. In fact, I have a song that I want to see set to a video so bad, but I don't have the equipment or mad skillz like you do. Email me if you are at all interested in working on a new video for me/us.

@MissAmyJoon - You are so grounded!!

Nocona said...

Just found your blog. I love the pictures of Rod in WFE. He looks even hotter with his hair like this. I guess I am under a rock this is the 1st Ive heard about it. Can't wait to see it now!

rpfangirldc said...

That's hilarious! (The Baby Sitting Award!)

Rob as Jacob... I can say that now. I don't shiver and get the ewwws like I do with SharkBoy.

I always want to move into ToR. The millions of pics they have amaze me.

And as for your comment on my blog yesterday... es, I underlined Catherine, Hale, Jacob, Edward... They are the Twi-lated things that I kept coming across. Good Guess! LOL

17foreverlisa said...

@Nocona - Welcome!! I'm glad you found your way over here (probaby because of MissAmyJoon). I'm glad you climbed out from under your rock and discovered Rob's new look and new movie project. If you get a chance, you should read the book. It's amazing, just as I think the movie will be. Come back soon!

@rpfangirldc - Mrs. P is cvery lever. Love her. It is just SO bizarre to call him Jacob, isn't it? I'm sure once the movie starts, we'll forget about everything but him ;) I'm glad I'm not the only one who has a Twi-filtered brain. LOL

Oh, thank's for thinking of me when you saw that Taylor & Kristin were coming here XX. Unfortunately, they are about 700 kilometers from me in Sydney & sadly, she made herself look very bogan in pic's taken of her on the hotel balcony. I believe Rob could do better....sorry. I'm sure that Taylor will be his usual charming self. Wish Rob was here...sigh....

SidewalkCandy said...

Lisa-I'm LOVING WFE. Read the book and the script. Somehow I'm guessing I have you to thank for that as I believe you are Twilove1's usual script pimp? Heh heh. We're hoping to make the prilgimage out to the circus again on Friday ,so wish us luck! Btw I am SO not upset about People mag featuring Rob Rob and only Rob. (He don't need no stinkin sidekick.) :)


17foreverlisa said...

@Stacked Like Sookie - I wasn't wild about the balcony pics, either :( I just pretended that Taylor was standing down below and that's who she was flipping off. LOL!

@SidewalkCandy - Yes, WFE is awesome. I think the movie is going to be incredible! I am so jealous that you girls get the opportunities that you do in SoCaL. I definitely live vicariously through all of you. I told Sue that you HAVE to go back to the set during the week, so I'm thrilled to hear you are. Can't wait to see more pictures! Good luck!!!

Billy Burke is such a D.I.L.F.
